Milestone for transformation of Holy Trinity as internal works begin

Work has begun on the internal transformation of Hull’s iconic Holy Trinity Church in the most significant changes to the majestic building since Victorian times.

Contractors began dismantling and removing pews today (February 13) as part of a major re-ordering of the nave, to create a flexible, open space for more inclusive worship as well as a wide range of cultural, social and community events.
